Jillian Harris first charmed audiences with her irrepressible humour and emotional honesty on ABC's The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Now she has her chance to share her wealth of experience in the design industry as co-host of Love it or List it Vancouver. Having previously hosted Canada's Handyman Challenge and working as a designer on Extreme Makeover: Home Addition, the show is a natural fit for Jillian.
Growing up in the picturesque Peace River Valley in Alberta was a catalyst for Jillian’s creativity and vivacious character. A self-proclaimed 'polished redneck', she's not afraid to get her hands dirty or climb a ladder with heels on. In design and daily life, she carefully combines elements of city and country, low brow and high class. From ATVing and campfires to perusing the shops of the Merchandise Mart for design trends, Jillian’s motto about 'doing it all' rings true.
While this lifestyle makes her the quintessential 'busy bee,' those close to Jillian would say her passion to make others happy is the highlight to her multi-faceted personality.
Outside of her work in television, Jillian jets between the U.S. and Canada to run her firm Jillian Harris Design, pours her heart and soul into her website jillianharris.com and prides herself at always putting family and personal life first. She loves traveling, hosting dinners at her home in Kelowna, taking in fine fashion and, of course, cuisine.
